NewS

毎年6月頃から翌年モデルのメーカー展示会が開催されている。その入荷は早ければ8月、多くは、11月前後に入荷となる。遅いと年明け3月頃の入荷もある。その間、メーカーから様々な情報が発信される。それらを中心にMONO情報をアップすることになる。各メーカーの比較などは、11月以降となるだろう。翌レースシーズンを考慮すると、12月中には、使用バイクやその他の機材、用品を決定できることが理想となる。

【IRONMAN Press】PENTICTON ADDS IRONMAN 70.3 TRIATHLON

北米の聖地、カナダのPENTICTONでIRONMAN70.3が8/25に開催される。

それまで同じブリティッシュコロンビア州のスキーで有名なWhistlerで2016年から2019年まで開催されていたが、会場を移し5年ぶりに復活となった。

PENTICTONの歴史は古く、1983年にフルディスタンスとして始まっている。当時KONAを含めても8レースだった頃の人気大会でバイクの1ループコースがその象徴だった。北米特有のインディアンサマーは陽射しが強く暑いが、日陰に入ると一瞬にて寒く感じ、もちろん夜は冷える環境。夏休みに行ける海外アイアンマンとしてニュージランドと並んで、日本人に人気のアイアンマンだった。

エントリーは、来週21日より開始となる。

PENTICTON, B.C., Canada / TAMPA, Fla. (Feb. 14, 2024) – IRONMAN announced today the return of the IRONMAN® 70.3® Canada triathlon which will be added in Penticton, British Columbia, providing additional racing in 2024. The IRONMAN 70.3 Canada half-distance race, which first took place from 2016-2019 in Whistler, British Columbia, is scheduled to return on Sunday, Aug. 25 in conjunction with the full-distance IRONMAN Canada triathlon, part of the VinFast IRONMAN North America Series. General registration for the 2024 IRONMAN 70.3 Canada triathlon will open on Wednesday, Feb. 21 and can be accessed by visiting, www.ironman.com/im703-canada

“We are thrilled to bring the IRONMAN 70.3 Canada triathlon back and have it join the iconic IRONMAN Canada event for an unforgettable weekend of racing in Penticton. This venue has become one of the most thrilling destinations and sought after experiences on the global IRONMAN circuit in part due to the amazing support from the community and volunteers,” said Tim Brosious, Regional Director at The IRONMAN Group. “Penticton has played a prominent role in the history of IRONMAN, and we know athletes will enjoy getting the opportunity to race an IRONMAN 70.3 triathlon through the stunning landscapes and challenging terrain that the Okanagan Valley has to offer.”

The IRONMAN 70.3 Canada triathlon will offer athletes an extraordinary racing experience and take place on portions of the historic IRONMAN Canada triathlon course, part of the VinFast IRONMAN North America Series. The race begins with a 1.9-km (1.2-mile) swim in beautiful Okanagan Lake. Once out of the water, athletes take off on a 91.5-km (56-mile) bike course through the Okanagan Valley riding through local wineries and scenic mountain views before descending back into Penticton. Athletes will cap off their race with a 21.1-km (13.1-mile) scenic run course that takes them along the rolling Kettle Valley Trail and Okanagan Lake. The race culminates with an unforgettable finish line experience on Lakeshore Drive in downtown Penticton.

“The addition of the IRONMAN 70.3 event to Penticton is great news for athletes and the community,” said Penticton Mayor Julius Bloomfield. “For athletes, it’s a chance to accomplish an incredible feat in one of the competition’s most iconic settings. For the community, it’s an opportunity to welcome more athletes, more support team members and more spectators to town so we can show off everything Penticton has to offer. This is a win-win for all involved.”

The IRONMAN 70.3 Canada triathlon will offer qualifying slots to the 2025 VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.

【IRONMAN Press】THE IRONMAN GROUP NAMES SCOTT DERUE AS CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

いよいよアイアンマングループが新体制となる。

昨年7月に前CEOのアンドリュー・メシック氏のリタイヤが報じられたが、新CEOとしてスコット・デルー氏の就任が発表された。

デルー氏のキャリアは、全米をメインとした超高級フィットネスクラブ、EQUINOXの社長として手腕を振るっていた。EQUINOXは全米12都市とイギリス、カナダにそれぞれ3店舗を含む107の施設を展開している。高級ホテル内を思わせるような豪華な内装を始め、様々な施設は心身ともに鍛え、癒す空間を提供している。

また、その前はミシガン大学のスクールオブビジネスの学部長を歴任するなど、教育、ビジネスにおいても成功を収めていた。そして、自身も250kmのGOBIウルトラマラソンやエベレストを含めた登山など、アスリートとしての一面も十分な実績を持っている。

現在、アイアンマングループは、トライアスロンに限らず、トレイルを含めたランニング、サイクリングなど、ジャンルも拡大傾向にあるが、原点は「IRONMAN」でありKONAだ。

新たな改革はイメージできるが、その原点の徹底を今一度期待したい。KONAは聖地であり、そこに走る選手たちは本物だ。トッププロはもちろんだが、「エイジ選手」の速さこそが、魅力であることは言うまでもないだろう。

THE IRONMAN GROUP NAMES SCOTT DERUE AS CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

– DeRue joins The IRONMAN Group after serving as President of Equinox 

– DeRue will lead the purpose-driven company in continued creation of world-class triathlon, trail running, road running, and cycling events

– Andrew Messick to remain as a member of the Board for The IRONMAN Group and an advisor to DeRue to ensure a smooth and successful transition

TAMPA, Fla. (Jan. 29, 2024) – The IRONMAN Group has announced today the appointment of Scott DeRue as its Chief Executive Officer. DeRue joins The IRONMAN Group from Equinox where he served as President. DeRue will join The IRONMAN Group’s Board of Directors.

DeRue’s career has been dedicated to creating life-changing experiences that help people discover and maximize their potential. At Equinox, DeRue oversaw a global lifestyle brand and health and wellness business that included 107 fitness clubs, a connected fitness platform, a large personal training and coaching practice, and digital commerce and media properties. During DeRue’s tenure, he led the company through significant rebuilding and growth, with a clear focus on maximizing customer satisfaction and engagement, which allowed Equinox to rebound successfully from the pandemic, inspire innovation, and achieve record-level operating performance and engagement with the company’s community of members and subscribers. Before his appointment as President, DeRue served for three years as an independent director on the Equinox board.

Prior to joining Equinox, DeRue served for five years as Dean of the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, where he and his team led the school to strong success setting new records in brand rankings, admissions, research, financial performance and fundraising. Prior to becoming Dean, DeRue held various faculty and leadership positions at Michigan for over a decade, taught and advised companies on team performance and organizational transformation, and was recognized as one of the 50 most influential business professors in the world. He began his career with the Monitor Group (now part of Deloitte) as an analyst for the company’s private equity business, and subsequently served as a management consultant and leader on corporate strategy and organizational transformation projects for companies in consumer retail, financial services, healthcare, and technology.

In addition to his broad business and managerial expertise, DeRue has long been a passionate member of the endurance community, having completed the 250km Gobi March ultramarathon, reached the summits of Everest, Denali, Elbrus, Vinson, and Aconcagua, and led teams to the highest point in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro.

In his role as The IRONMAN Group CEO, DeRue will lead the world’s largest organizer of mass participation events with a portfolio of hundreds of world-class events across more than 50 countries in triathlon, running, trail running, road cycling, and mountain biking and a suite of digital training platforms and programs for athletes. He will leverage his background with engaged athletic and academic communities to intensify the focus on the athlete journey and experience, ensuring The IRONMAN Group endurance brands continue to harness the passion and drive of athletes, sponsors, volunteers, and employees to host life-changing events, deliver compelling opportunities for athlete enrichment, and celebrate the human spirit for many years to come.

“We are thrilled to bring someone of Scott’s talent and experience to The IRONMAN Group. Scott is a dynamic leader with a unique track record of driving transformation and growth in different roles and environments,” said Janine Shelffo, Group President and Chief Growth & Strategy Officer at Advance. “He deeply respects the passion of endurance athletes driven to do hard things and understands how that leads to personal transformation, having experienced it personally as an endurance runner and mountaineer.”

Jesse Du Bey, Managing Partner of Orkila Capital, added, “The IRONMAN Group leadership team is full of amazing people with decades of experience in endurance sports. Scott will bring a fresh perspective, which combined with respect for the legacy of The IRONMAN Group’s historic brands, an understanding of the importance of customer-centricity, and focus on innovation, will be a great thing for our sports, communities, and company.”

“I am honored to join and lead this purpose-driven organization that for 45 years has consistently tested the boundaries of human achievement and underscored the belief that Anything is Possible,” said DeRue “ “My life has been deeply enriched by being part of the global endurance community and I feel incredibly fortunate to lead The IRONMAN Group in its mission to inspire people to be the best version of themselves through testing the limits of their physical and mental strength.”

DeRue earned a BS with Honors in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Kenan-Flagler Business School, and a Ph. D. in Business Administration from the Eli Broad Graduate School of Management at Michigan State University. DeRue is a board member of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School and a trustee of The Conference Board. DeRue and his wife, Kathy, are relocating to Tampa, Florida, where The IRONMAN Group is headquartered.  

DeRue succeeds Andrew Messick, who announced his retirement in July 2023 after 12 years as CEO. Messick will remain a member of the Board of Directors for The IRONMAN Group, as well as serve as an advisor to DeRue to ensure a smooth and successful transition for the company and the sports it serves.

“I am delighted to pass the baton to a leader of Scott’s experience and capabilities,” said Messick. “His high energy and commitment level will inspire and motivate The IRONMAN Group’s employees, partners, and the triathlon, trail running, road running, and cycling communities,” said Messick. “The company is in very capable hands, and I look forward to supporting his leadership of this amazing organization.”

“Marbella, Spain joins an exclusive group of worldwide locations that have demonstrated a history of successfully hosting IRONMAN and/or IRONMAN 70.3 events, and offers the perfect backdrop for an exciting and memorable race week experience for athletes and their supporters” said Andrew Messick, President & Chief Executive Officer of The IRONMAN Group. “Marbella has consistently shown that it can offer a racing experience with a host venue worthy of a world championship event. Steeped in culture, and a well-reputed holiday destination, Marbella is internationally accessible and will undoubtedly make for an incredible trip for athletes, their family and friends alike.”

Marbella receives a high number of tourists throughout the year and is known as an international destination for sporting events thanks to its diversity of offerings, warmth of climate, and excellent tourism activities. The city has numerous sports facilities, including world-class golf courses, tennis courts, soccer fields and several marinas and has hosted multiple national and international sporting events.

Marbella has been hosting IRONMAN 70.3 events since 2018, and last year it played host to the 2023 IRONMAN 70.3 European TriClub Championship. Many other prominent sporting events have also been held in Marbella such as the various Davis Cup qualifiers, World Padel Tour tournaments, Ladies European Tour golf, International Rhythmic Gymnastics Grand Prix, ATP tennis tournaments, and Marbella Crossfit Championship. In addition, Marbella is also known for its wide range of water sports, such as surfing, kitesurfing, paddle surfing and sailing, among others.

José María Arrabal, General Secretary for Sport of the Andalusian Government, said: “We are really excited that Marbella has been chosen for this important international competition. Major sporting events are a huge draw for our region, thanks to the endless possibilities they bring. Having the 2025 VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship is aligned with our mission to bring to Andalusia the best sporting events in the world that also generate positive economic impact, international tourism opportunities and the promotion of sport at the same time.”

“Marbella is a perfect destination to host an internationally renowned event like the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship triathlon and we are elated to be selected to welcome the world for this pinnacle IRONMAN 70.3 event,” said Mayor of Marbella, Angeles Muñoz. “It is a great tourist destination that has become a benchmark for world tourism without having lost any of its typically Andalusian flavour and its historical essence. Sea and mountains, tradition and modernity meet in this Mediterranean town to provide athletes and their friends and family with an environment rich in hues, both multicultural and cosmopolitan, open to progress, and a way of life based on co-existence and the welcoming nature of its people. We look forward to bringing the world’s best triathletes to Marbella in 2025!”

Located on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, Marbella is flanked by the ocean and the mountains, and is often deemed one of the most beautiful and glamorous locations in Spain. This Andalusian city is a spectacular host for athletes and supporters, thanks to its ideal climate and Mediterranean seafront promenade views. The annual average temperature is around 18.5º C/65.3º F, with 320 days of sunshine a year providing for a perfect tourist and sporting destination. The city is 35 miles from the international airport of Malaga, making it easy to welcome athletes from all over the world. For more information on Marbella, visit here.

The VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship triathlon is the culmination of over 120 global IRONMAN 70.3 qualifying events which see approximately 200,000 registered athletes every year competing for the coveted age-group slots. After a successful edition of the 2023 VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Lahti, Finland, the event now shifts to Taupō, New Zealand on December 14-15, 2024.

Looking Ahead
2024 – Taupō, New Zealand – December 14-15, 2024
The Great Lake Taupō District is rich in history and is one of the world’s most unique and picturesque areas. Located in the center of the North Island of New Zealand, it has a fascinating volcanic landscape and a cultural heritage dating back to the arrival of Māori in New Zealand in the 14th century. The Great Lake Taupō District is one of the most pure, beautiful, and unspoiled areas in the country and encompasses the lakeside towns of Taupō, Turangi, Kinloch and Mangakino. As a popular year-round destination, it houses the largest freshwater crater lake in Australasia, geothermal attractions, and the mountains and ski areas of Tongariro National Park, a dual World Heritage National Park. Host of IRONMAN New Zealand since 1999, Taupō has become one of IRONMAN’s most iconic events.

【IRONMAN Press】WOMEN’S 2023 VINFAST IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN KAILUA-KONA, HAWAI`I

来月14日に迫った女子のアイアンマン世界選手権。そのスタートリストが発表となった。

最大のトピックスとなるのはテイラー・ニブの参戦だろう。8月のアイアンマン70.3世界選手権優勝で付与された出場権だったが、当初よりダブル世界選手権は想定内だったであろう。ショート、ミドルを極めた若きアメリカの新女王はKONAでデビューウィンとなるのだろうか。

ショート系出身では珍しく、バイクの強い選手だけにその期待が高まっている。3種目の総合力で女性版の「クリスティアン・ブルンメンフェルト」となる可能性は高い。何と言っても若さが武器であり、その伸び代は計り知れないモンスターだ。今回ニブの母親がエイジ選手として出場予定となっているが、あらためてその若さを感じる。母親と共に最高の結果を目指している。

一方、迎え撃つのはアイアンマン世界選手権5勝のダニエラ・リフと昨年覇者のチェルシー・ソダロ。年齢や子育てもある中で世界のトップを走る二人は、気合いも十分だろう。特に経験がもの言うアイアンマンだけにリフの勝機は十分にある。KONA8勝のポーラ・ニュービーフレジャー、6勝のナターシャ・バドマンに次ぐ5勝は十分であり、時代から見れば最強のリフ。6勝のラストチャンスを賭けて臨むのだろう。

8/27(日)アイアンマン70.3ワールドチャンピオンシップ(男子)が開催された。

結果は23歳のリコ・ボーゲン(ドイツ)が大会レコードで優勝している。また、2位、3位もドイツ勢となり、表彰台独占となった。レースペースは速く、上位選手のタイムも僅差となっている。優勝候補の筆頭だったクリスティアン・ブルンメンフェルト(ノルウェー)は、35位だった。

一躍、その名を轟かせた若きドイツの新星ボーゲン。顔をクシャクシャにて涙のゴールとなった。ボーゲンはスイム出身だが、バイク、ランも含めたパフォーマンスは高かった。ターゲットはアイアンマン70.3とし、目標とする選手は、やはりドイツのスーパースター、ヤン・フロデノだった。5月のアイアンマン70.3 Kraicigau(ドイツ)でも優勝していた。ローカルレースだけに即優勝候補とはなってはいなかったが、その実力をアピールすることができたレースだった。

今回優勝のボーゲンのレースはこのミドルディスタンスをメインに活動しているが、その動向は注目となるだろう。そして、ボーゲンの乗るバイクは「KU CYCLE」にも注目が集まるだろう。2021年のセントジョージアイアンマン世界選手権で確認されているが、特異の形状が目を引いた。

ドイツの強さを見せつけた。2004年コナ優勝のノーマン・スタッドラー(ドイツ)から「バイクの強いドイツ」のイメージが定着し、2006年までの3年間はドイツが制していた。その後、ショート出身のランの強い選手が活躍を見せていたが、2015年全ての種目でパフォーマンスの高い、パーフェクトな北京五輪覇者のヤン・フロデノによって、完成されたアイアンマンの走りを見せつけられた。その頃からショートからロングに挑戦する選手への期待が大きくなって行った。

今回のアイアンマン70.3は、各選手のレーススケジュールが大きく関係しているため、ショート系vsロング系の決定戦とはならなかった。特に男子はニースが近いため「オールスター」とはなっていない。アイアンマン70.3は、何となく「幅広い選手層」というイメージだったが、PTOの2021年コリンズカップでは明確に「異種格闘技」であり、「オリンピアンの可能性」をカタチにした。日程調整は難しい。

一方で、アイアンマン70.3を主戦場とする選手も増えている。陸上競技で言えば「中距離」と言えるのか、ショート系の挑戦、ロング系のスピードレースではなく、スピードと持久力が求められる確立した種目として「専門化」が進んでいる。また、レース数も多く、タイミング、回数などの調整もしやすい。

RICO BOGEN TAKES TOP STEP IN GERMAN SWEEP AT THE 2023 VINFAST IRONMAN 70.3 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN LAHTI, FINLAND

LAHTI, Finland (Aug. 27, 2023) – Today in Lahti, Finland, 22-year-old German Rico Bogen took the crown at the 2023 VinFast IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship with a time of 3:32:22—a new IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship best time, topping Michael Raelert’s 3:34:04 set in 2009. He swam 22:52 over the 1.9 km (1.2-mile) ROKA swim course in Lake Vesijärvi’s crystal-clear waters, biked the 90km (56-mile) FULGAZ bike course in 1:56:17 on the day’s calm and cool conditions, and ran a 1:11:02 on the 21.1km (13.1-mile) HOKA run course to finish among cheering crowds. Completing the podium was fellow Germans Frederic Funk (03:33:26) and Jan Stratmann (03:34:11), making it the first ever German podium in a IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship. On the shores of Lake Vesijärvi in Lahti, Finland today, triathlon fans worldwide witnessed the return of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship to European soil. Male professionals and age-groupers alike took to the mild waters of Teivaa Harbour, ready to test themselves not only against the world’s best, but the region’s beautiful swim, bike, and run courses.   Americans Ben Kanute and Mark Dubric were among the early leaders in the water, setting the tight swim up from the get-go. The front group of 15 to 20 athletes formed a long stream, all in contact with one another until the second half of the swim. Defending IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship Kristian Blummenfelt was farther back than most expected, with the company of American Sam Long.  A frantic swim exit featured a steady stream of men all within 2:20 of each other. Justus Nieschlag (DEU) was first out of the water in 23:43 with Jorgen Gunderson (DEN), Marc Dubric, Rico Borgen, Kanute and others out of the water just seconds behind the leader. Blummenfelt exited the water 1:29 back, with Matt Hanson (USA) and Jackson Laundry (CAN) on his heels. It was a great swim for Lionel Sanders (CAN) and Sam Long as well, in close proximity to each other out of the water, setting them both up well to work together on the bike.  It was a true European showcase over the 90 km (56 mile) bike course through the Finnish countryside. With very low winds and a sprinkling of rain, weather wasn’t a huge factor as the men began to power through the rolling course.  Reminiscent of the era in Kona when German cyclists dominated the sport (circa 1990’s), five Germans drove the front of the bike, with Frenchman Mathis Margirier holding his own in the mix. Frederic Funk (DEU) moved up early in the bike to join Bogen, Nieschlag, Jan Stratman (DEU), and Maximillian Sperl (DEU), joined by Brit Joshua Lewis held steady in the front group, which continued to put time into the chase group behind them. Funk moved through the field in the opening kilometers of the bike, with Long and Sanders putting in solid moves on the bike as well; until Sanders was delivered a penalty, he’d moved into tenth. The front pack continued to put time onto everyone behind them, however.  Funk was off the bike in 1:55:13 and out of transition in the lead. Margriere was hot on his heels, with Bogen, Nieschlag, Stratman, and Lewis all chasing.  Margriere and Funk ran out onto the two-loop, 21.1 km (13.1 mile) HOKA run course stride for stride, with Bogen, Stratman, Nieschlag and Lewis ready to put the chase on all within a minute back.  Sperl and Long lead the second group out of transition, starting the run approximately 3:30 back of the leading six men.  At just two kilometers in, 22-year-old Rico Bogen, who won IRONMAN 70.3 Kraichgau earlier this summer, made a surprisingly aggressive move to the front. He held onto his lead, running a blistering average pace in the low 3-minute range and putting more time into Margriere with every passing kilometer. Funk passed the Frenchman for second at 14 kilometers, and Stratmann passed him near the 20-kilometer mark. Bogen soared across the finish line with a run split of 1:11:02 and a finish time of 3:32:22, a relative fresh face in the sport taking an astonishing win on the world stage. His countrymen and fellow bike powerhouses Funk and Stratmann were across the line within minutes of the leader, making for an all-German podium and all-European top-five.  “I think I’m the youngest world champion maybe, it’s really unbelievable,” Bogen said at the finish line. “The bike was really hard, but I had my running legs.” Bogen, 22 years of age, indeed has become the youngest to claim the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship title, surpassing Gustav Iden (NOR) who was 23 when he won the event in 2019. Frederick Funk said after his race, “My goal was to be better than last year. I tried a few times to get away from the group, but the race dynamics were really high level on the bike. I tried to conserve as much energy as possible on the bike and play my cards well. On the run I surprised myself—I’ve never run that well. I think the run really suited me,” .

8/26(土)アイアンマン70.3ワールドチャンピオンシップ(女子)が開催された。

結果は予想通りのテイラー・ニブ(USA)が連覇を果たしている。しかも大会レコードの圧勝となった。各種目で上位の走りを見せるが、ショート系としては、今後の活躍が期待できるバイクの強い選手であることをあらためてアピールできた。もう一人の優勝候補であった女王ダニエラ・リフ(スイス)は精彩を欠き、9位に終わった。唯一の日本人選手、上田藍は33位だった。

ニブはやはり強かった。ほぼ当確というレベルの優勝候補ではあったが、安定した強さを見せた。昨年の足の怪我から5月のWTCS横浜大会では、本調子とは言えなかったが、ここでしっかり合わせて来た。バイクの強さは「ロング」への可能性の高さとも言えるだけに、若き女子のエースとして、大いに盛り上げてくれることだろう。

BACK-TO-BACK: UNITED STATES TAYLOR KNIBB DEFENDS HER TITLE AT THE 2023 VINFAST IRONMAN 70.3 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TRIATHLON IN LAHTI, FINLAND

LAHTI, Finland (Aug. 26, 2023) – American Olympian Taylor Knibb captured her second VinFast IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship title in Lahti, Finland, on Saturday. After exiting the ROKA swim course in the top-3, Knibb quickly gained the lead on the FULGAZ bike course and never looked back. Putting in a dominating performance, Knibb successfully defended her title as World Champion and did so with a new IRONMAN 70.3 best time of 3:53:02, beating out the previous best time of 3:53:03 set by Germany’s Laura Phillip in 2022. On the shores of Lake Vesijärvi in Lahti, Finland today, triathlon fans worldwide got to witness the return of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship to European soil. Female professionals and age-groupers alike took to the waters of Teivaa Harbour, ready to test themselves not only against the world’s best, but the region’s beautiful swim, bike, and run courses.  Pre-race conversations were dominated by two women: The fast-rising American star Taylor Knibb, and the sport’s reigning Queen—Daniela Ryf of Switzerland. Knibb is the youngest woman to ever represent the U.S. in triathlon at the Olympics (Tokyo 2020) and has wowed fans in each one of her appearances in triathlon since—yet she hasn’t had the chance to race an “on” Ryf (the five-time IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion and five-time IRONMAN World Champion). Both Knibb and Ryf have enjoyed considerable success this year and came into this race flying high.Taylor Knibb took off out of Teivaa Harbour, with a group of about six others forming behind her in a lead pack. Lucy Buckingham (GBR) took over the lead about a third of the way into the 1.93 km (1.2-mile) ROKA swim course in Lake Vesijärvi, with Knibb staying hot on her feet. Brazil’s Pamela Oliveria was in the mix at the front of the swim as well.  Behind the lead pack of about seven, many of the pre-race favorites all formed the chase pack: Holly Lawrence (GBR), Kat Matthews (GBR), Paula Findlay (CAN), Daniela Ryf, Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR), and Laura Phillip. Lawrence swam aggressively, trying to bridge the gap to the lead swimmers, but they remained up front. Buckingham was out of the water first in 24:43, with Knibb and Oliviera close behind her, just two seconds back. The second pack exited the water a minute and a half back, including Lawrence, Salthouse (AUS), Matthews, Ryf, Pallant Browne, Findlay, and Tamara Jewett (CAN).After a lightning-fast transition, Knibb surged to the front almost immediately in her newly confident TT bike position. She continued to put on a show on the rolling, rural bike course taking in Lahti’s pastoral countryside. Imogen Simmonds surprised with her aggressive move to the front and ability to hold second for much of the bike course. Ryf, Findlay, Matthews, and Pallant-Browne stayed together as a chase pack, but all began to lose time to the hard-charging Knibb as the 90 km (56 mile) bike course unfolded.  Simmonds held her own, but it was Knibb at the front of the race all day long. The chasers’ gap only increased as the kilometers clicked by, to well over three minutes at the end of the bike. As Knibb began to repeat just what she did in St. George last year, fans began to wonder how large her buffer would be this year. Knibb jumped off the bike with a split of 2:07:52, with Simmonds 2:09 back and Matthews, Pallant Browne, Ryf and Findlay rolling in at just over 5 minutes back.Knibb made short work of T2 and was off in under 40 seconds—almost 30 seconds faster than Simmonds, next in line. She demolished the first 5 kilometers of the two-loop, 21.1 km (13.1-mile) HOKA run course in under 19 minutes, setting a blistering pace from the get-go. Her run form was spot-on, despite having struggled with a foot injury late last year. With only Matthews and Pallant-Browne running in Knibb’s ballpark, the two Brits battled it out for third. Matthews held her own and then, with her strong, consistent pace, was able to overtake Simmonds late in the run for second.Knibb surely knew the crown was hers long before she turned towards the famous Salpausselka Ski Jumps. The final taste of victory was sweeter though as she entered the finish chute knowing a repeat title was hers. On the heels of a 1:18 half marathon split, Knibb finished with an impressive 3:53:02 (her fastest IRONMAN 70.3 finish time yet) and heaps of pride on a day that rewarded her hard work, patience, and determination.

“It’s a long day, it’s an IRONMAN 70.3 and I’m just grateful to make it to the finish line and grateful to be here,” Knibb said at the finish line. “Some people were questioning my decision to race, but racing excites me and I’m just happy to be here.” “I had a really good day. They don’t come always,” said Kat Matthews. “I’m a little disappointed that Taylor just ‘ticked off’ this race. I’m excited to see what she does next!
